Deliveries are slated to begin in September.

The Porsche 718 Cayman has gone into production at the company's plant in Stuttgart, Germany.

The move means production of all two-door Porsche sports cars will soon be located at the same plant.  This is expected to occur in mid-August as the company will phase out the previous-generation Cayman which is still being built at Volkswagen's Osnabrück plant.

The Zuffenhausen factory currently builds more than 220 vehicles per day but the addition of the 718 Cayman is expected to see that number increase to approximately 240 vehicles a day.

Unveiled earlier this year, the 718 Cayman follows in the footsteps of the 718 Boxster and features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet.  It enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in as little as 4.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 170 mph.

Buyers looking for something more powerful can order the 718 Cayman S which has a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 350 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque.  Thanks to the extra oomph, the car runs from 0-60 mph in as little as 4.0 seconds before topping out at 177 mph.

Both models are currently available to order and European deliveries are slated to begin in September.
